Case Overview

FeganScott filed a national class-action lawsuit on behalf of a nationwide class of persons who used Roundup in the agricultural or commercial context, because glyphosate, the main ingredient in Roundup, is associated with an increased risk of developing cancer.

According to the suit, Bayer AG, parent company of Monsanto, failed to appropriately and adequately inform and warn consumers of the serious and dangerous risks associated with the use and exposure to glyphosate and Roundup. The suit claims that glyphosate and Roundup have long been associated with the development of numerous forms of cancer, including non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL).

The lawsuit seeks to represent persons who used Roundup in the agricultural or commercial context and who have not yet developed NHL and seeks compensation to provide medical monitoring for the early diagnosis of disease.
